Cargo throughput (airfreight and airmail) at the Fraport Group’s five majority-owned airports – Frankfurt, Antalya in Turkey, Burgas and Varna in Bulgaria, and Lima in Peru grew by 27.5 per cent to 217,000 tonnes in June over the same period a year earlier. During the first six months of 2010 these airports registered a 30 per cent surge in cargo tonnage.

The group’s home base, Frankfurt Airport (FRA) also saw key growth as Germany’s largest airport, with the airport handling 192,508 tonnes of airfreight, up 29.9 per cent, in June over a year earlier.

Commenting on the latest traffic figures, Fraport executive board chairman Stefan Schulte said: “These numbers convincingly show that the finance and economic crisis has been overcome and that the aviation industry – despite several small traffic blips – is back on track to reaching and even exceeding the results of the pre-crisis years.”
